Just my Opinion but when using the extreme penetrator bullet, Velocity is your friend.

I think that bullet depends on velocity and if it goes thru too much animal that type of cut wont show extended out and itll look more like a solid in the pic james pisted with tiny slits. Im gonna run it out of a 460 this year on deer just to see

I think it could be a rocking 357 Max bullet...
Maybe I have an excuse to start looking for a max barrel again

As for picking your shots... I might just have to accept that it is the reality of hunting with a 357 and not something bigger. It's suppose to be a challenge.

Karl If its what you have go for it. Practice Practice Practice, pick your shots, use a good bullet, and if he's still standing KEEP SHOOTING. If you have to turn down a shot because of a bad presentation, so be it.Even with a bigger caliber gun we should know our limitations and keep to them.Your remark was right on the money.
THAT'S HUNTING AND IT IS SUPPOSED TO BE A CHALLENGE!

I use a few of the smaller calibers and love the challenge of picking the right shot but lately ive had a few times with great axis bucks at far distances and bad angles really wished i had my bfr 460!

That's part of the exasperating fun of what we do. We pick our gun ,load, bullet,practice,practice,practice and make our plans and THE HUNTING GODS laugh and say, WATCH THIS.
